    Colorado’s Gold Rush

    If you ever have a chance to go to the Olympics – do it, especially if you’re an athlete on the US Team, but also if you’re a spectator or a volunteer. I had the opportunity to go to the 2002 Olympics in Salt Lake and it was an amazing experience.

    Sometimes people think the CSCUSA Gold Pass is a medal, and usually I let them think that. IMG00033-20091027-0928The things I remember most about the Olympics are; the huge, nearly empty plane from JFK to SLC (remember this was just after 911), Continue Reading

  • Getting Physical

    on October 21 | in Uncategorized | by | with Comments Off

    Getting Physical It’s funny to see what motivates people to exercise. In my experience, it’s varied from wanting to keep off the freshman 15 to wanting to keep up with my kids. But for many of us, a sure fire way to kick start an exercise regime is the pending ski season.

    Recall the thigh burning feeling of your last attempt to tame Winter Park/Mary Jane’s bumps, or the aching leg syndrome that came with sliding down Telluride’s steeps, or the sucking wind sensation that accompanied the hike to Crested Butte’s extremes – there’s motivation for you.

    Good Skiing Can Happen to You

    The economy is in the toilet, we get it. Jobs are scarce, understood. These days we are all having to make tough decisions about where to spend our already limited discretionary dollars.

    That said, Colorado has nearly a half million skiers and riders living in the state, and having world class skiing and riding in our back yards is one of the reasons many of us live here. That’s why this year, Colorado Ski Country resorts are working hard to come up with creative ways to make it easy to get some good skiing in this winter.

    Two For The Records

    The Colorado ski season bounded to one of its earliest starts ever this season with Loveland Ski Area opening its chair lifts to skiers and riders on October 7th and Arapahoe Basin opening on October 9th. Loveland’s opening day of October 7th is the earliest the resort has opened in 40 years and Arapahoe Basin’s opening on the 9th is the earliest on record that resort has opened.

  • Running the Good Race

    on October 6 | in Uncategorized | by | with Comments Off

    The race to be the first Colorado ski resort to open is intense these days, especially as Colorado Ski Country is experiencing colder temperatures, early season snow fall, and conditions conducive for snowmaking. The race to open can be likened to a beauty pageant where snowmaking is the Botox used to enhance what Mother Nature provides.IMGP2340

  • Making the Grade

    on September 28 | in Uncategorized | by | with Comments Off

    One score, minus seven years ago, Colorado Ski Country USA launched the 5th Grade Passport Program to provide the means to introduce all 5th graders to skiing and snowboarding in Colorado. All you had to do to qualify was be in 5th grade. Simple as that, just make it though the 4th grade, and you were eligible for a full season of skiing on the 5th Grade Passport. Today, CSCUSA has helped introduce more than 200,000 families to Colorado skiing with the popular program, and we are offering it again this year.

    We know its coming. It happens every year. And yet it inevitably seems to comes early, or when we least expect it, and I swear it’s always on a Monday. I’m talking about the first snow. It happened this week (Sunday night) and by Monday morning it was official – there’s snow on the mountains in Colorado Ski Country. (photo from Arapahoe Basin/Kimberly Trembearth)A-Basin1
